DSCN2085.JPGDSCN2100.JPGWe have a vintage refrigerator that came with our 52 airstream trailer. We have no idea what model it is, who built it, etc. There are no numbers or plates with info on it anywhere.  We have had it checked out, but were told it needs new cooling coils.  We have not been able to find anyone that does this type of work in Northern California.  Can anyone help us out.  The picture of the fridge is in our album.

If anyone know what refrigerator this is, please advise.  we would appreciate any info you

have on it.  We would like to get it in working order.

There was an outfit in newengland made a product called a "board buster". This would replace all the components up to the burner. A nice safe upgrade retrofit for all that aged gas controls...just a thought

Thats old and before my day indeed, definitely original and awesome. I'd pull the core if i could and ship. Especially if its not a leaker, just wrap in cardboard. Refers like these, ideally, should be sealed fromthe front...maybe with plexiglass for asthetics and vented from the bottom of the coach...which is something airstream liked to do. So that in the event of a core leak...no fumes could reach the living quarters but all would be vented outside. These older cores had high levels of ammonia and would make ice in a short time just like the household refers of old...good luck

Vallejo Business is gone. Even tried to call gentlemen that used to work there.  No luck.

Evidently, several people used this business, but not in the last year. They have been closed a

while.  Thanks for responding.
